Tahoe City Transit Center Set For Fall Opening

March 15, 2012

The Tahoe City Transit Center will be open this fall.
Construction on the Tahoe City Transit Center will resume this spring and is expected to be open this fall. The site work is nearly complete and building construction is well under way. The opening of the transit center was delayed from its anticipated December 2011 opening due to contractor/supplier issues, combined with the short Lake Tahoe construction season. Construction will resume in the spring with roof installation and final building finishes that require higher temperatures to be performed adequately.

When the Transit Center opens, it will provide a modern, convenient and comfortable location for Tahoe Area Regional Transit (TART) passengers to transfer between buses and to wait for arriving buses. It will include an indoor, heated waiting area with restrooms and a covered outdoor waiting area with bench seating. In all, 130 parking spaces will be provided. Several enclosed bike lockers with an electronic pay per use system will be available along with more traditional bike racks. A state-of- the-art display system will be installed in the building to alert passengers to the arrival time of their bus. The system, known as Nextbus, has already been implemented on the TART bus system and is now available to the public. The system provides online real-time location of on-route buses and predicted arrival times of TART buses at all stops on all routes. The information can be accessed via text messaging or smartphone web access. That system can be accessed at by clicking this link: NEXTBUS.

The Tahoe City Transit Center is a $4.5 million construction project funded largely by federal and state transportation grants along with Placer County Transient Occupancy Tax funds. Gilbane Construction is the prime contractor and the project is being managed by the Placer County Department of Public Works. The center is located on Highway 28 south of the Tahoe City “Y” on U.S. Forest Service land on the west side of the highway.
